A day trip to Lindos
Sunday, July 10
Lindos, a striking jewel on the east side of the island, brags of its history. Above the modern town rises the Acropolis of Lindos, a natural citadel which was fortified successively by the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Knights of St John and the Ottomans.
This makes the site difficult to excavate and interpret archaeologically. The Acropolis offers spectacular views of the surrounding harbours and coastline. The narrow cobbled streets take you to the elegant town, filled with small restaurants and cafes offering a fantastic view of the castle and the sea from their terraces, while the fine-sand beach on the rim of Lindos invites you to try some of the warmest waters in the Mediterranean.
10:30: Pick up from Mediterranean Hotel (approximately an hours drive).
